What’s Your Name?

What's Your Name

I love seeing all the different names in Second Life! I started SL in January of 2012, which unfortunately, was after SL stopped using last names! So, like all the others after that, I’m just ‘resident’! I always type ‘resident’ with a small ‘r’, because I don’t consider it part of my name. I’m TinLiz Winterstorm…..and proud of it! I know TinLiz is an odd name! I’d like to say it was a well thought out name that I had in my mind for a long time. But, that’s not the way it is! When first joining Second Life, when it asked for username, all the ones I had in mind were used, and I didn’t want a number in my name. So, after oodles of tries I finally managed to find a name that is kind of like what I initially wanted, and without a number. After this many years, I finally realized that ‘TinLiz’ is actually a combination of two nicknames I was called when I was a kid. And once I realized that, I started to really like this name. I do prefer ‘Liz” but TinLiz works too! Or even ‘Tin’…I don’t mind that either. Once I put on a last name I liked, I then became who I am in Second Life. Which is pretty much the real me. I don’t have the mental energy to be fake or some kind of pretend person. I’m just me! So you can call me Tin, or you can call me TinLiz, or you can call me Liz…..but please don’t call me ‘resident’!

I’m a little confused with the Fluffy and Fierce Event! Not by what it is….but in how to pick one or the other! So, I’ve picked one of each to show you! Firstly, I have on the Sydney Dress from [QE]! Sidney is fierce and also really pretty! It’s HUD driven with eight colours for the skirt layers and four colours for the top, plus it has three areas to customize. It comes in five standard sizes plus fitted versions for the Maitreya and SLink mesh bodies. While you’re at the F & F Event grab the hints at each booth, then head to the main store to find your free gift!

Also, at the Fluffy and Fierce Event is Pimp My Sh!t with two fluffy and two fierce tattoos exclusive for the event. I’m wearing the Fluffy Tiger tattoo, in medium ink tone, which is perfectly detailed and compatible with the classic avatars, plus Omega and TMP mesh bodies!

Take a gander at these absolutely stunning pumps!! The Krista Stilettos from NX-Nardcotix come in sixteen colours and are compatible with the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet. They have beautiful detail, rich colours, and a unique style that stand out from the rest!

These nail appliers rock! There’s sixteen Pussycat Claws nail applier packs to choose from….and in each pack there’s one claw going to opposite direction, which goes on the thumb…a la kitty cat! Hello Dave always has something fun and exciting to paint your SLink or Omega compatible nails with!

The Miss CoCo hair, browns pack is from Vanity Hair and available at the current round of Hair O Logy.

The Mata Hari, high neck necklace from Maxi Gossamer Jewellery is a must have!

And as always I’m wearing the Nelly mesh head from Genesis Labs, the Lara mesh body from Maitreya , and the high feet and elegant hands from SLink.

The poses are from the Marilyn Series from an lar [poses].

I made a trip to Hazardous for these pictures.

57 Channels (And Nothin’ On)

57 Channels (And Nothin' On)

So I bought a .44 magnum it was solid steel cast
And in the blessed name of Elvis well I just let it blast
‘Til my TV lay in pieces there at my feet
And they busted me for disturbing the almighty peace
Judge said “What you got in your defense son?”
“Fifty-seven channels and nothin’ on”
I can see by your eyes friend you’re just about gone
Fifty-seven channels and nothin’ on

Bruce Springsteen – 57 Channels (And Nothin’ On)

Some days I’d like to get a gun and give my TV a blast or two….but I think it would be more appropriate to just shoot the receiver! It’s not the TV’s fault that there’s 57 channels and nothing on! At this point there’s a whole lot more than just 57…there’s scads of channels…and it seems that just about all of them have nothing but reality shows on! Yea….I think the term ‘reality’ is used loosely because there’s nothing much real about them! I just can’t believe how there is nothing on any of the channels that even remotely interests me! Luckily I really like true crime shows so I’m usually tuned into the ID channel watching Joe Kenda:Homicide Hunter or Sins and Secrets! And TLC has a lot of Hard Evidence and 48 Hours:Mysteries too! I don’t want to see what the Kardashians are doing or see what the housewives of any city are fighting about! Just give me an old movie for the DVD player and a few ‘who-dun-its’ and I’m a happy camper!

One thing that I’m super excited about is NX-Nardcotix! I remember shopping for mesh feet, way back when, and I found NX-Nardcotix had really nice feet with sandals! I loved them and wore them everywhere back then! Well, now NX-Nardcotix offers a wide array of footwear for the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet and also offers well made women’s attire! Today I’m wearing the Estela Stiletto, they come in Glitter(seen here) or Patent and are available at the current round of FaMESHed, which runs until September 27. You’ll be seeing more NX-Nardcotix creations from me in the near future!

A new round of Designer Showcase is running and I’m wearing the Prism Kate Fringed Leather by Journey! It’s HUD driven with four colours, all super vibrant with great detailing, in the New Orleans Pigment set and comes in five fitted sizes plus fitted versions for the SLink mesh bodies and the Lara mesh body from Maitreya!

I think the Birds of a Feather Tattoo from Pimp My Sh!t is the first tattoo I bought for my SLink hands and feet. It’s still gorgeous and relevant today!

Here’s another look at a pose from the Modern Condition Pose Sets from Le Poppycock and available at The Chapter Four!

My nail applier is one of the five selections from the Little Fall palette from Hello Dave!

The Pippa, Variety B, Rare hair is from +elua+.

The Pearl Necklace, Black combo is from Maxi Gossamer Jewellery.

The bare bones of my avatar are the Nelly mesh head from Genesis Labs, the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, and the elegant hands and high feet from SLink.

I’m out on a little boat dock at the Newton sim, home of NX-Nardcotix, for these pictures. I could have rezzed a little 2 man row boat to take in the scenery, but I didn’t want to do all the rowing alone. SO, maybe one day I can find someone who’d like to go rowing with me! 😉
